Justin Fields Made the Team! Here’s a Look at the Bears’ 53-Player Roster

Of course Justin Fields made the team. QB1 put up a 90.4 grade from PFF for his preseason exploits, which featured Fields going 23-for-30, throwing for 243 yards, and 3 touchdowns. Perhaps the most important stat from PFF is that he had no turnover-worthy plays. It’s just the preseason caveats aside, minimizing potential game-changing negative plays while simultaneously big-game hunting (6.7% big-time throw rate this preseason is impressive considering Joe Burrow’s number was at 6.4% last year for comparison) could help Fields take a huge leap if it can translate to the regular season.

But enough about Fields. What about the rest of his teammates?
